Bulgaria: New provision allowing price indexation in public procurement contracts

On 5 August 2022, an amendment to the Bulgarian Public Procurement Act (“PPA”) came into force, allowing for price indexation of public procurement contracts in the event of inflation. The amendment aims to address the effects of industrial inflation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and amplified by the war in Ukraine. Although the new provision applies to public procurement contracts in all industries, the need for price indexation is most pressing in relation to construction contracts.
